Freezer-Friendly Cheesy Chicken Cutlet Fingers

 Freezer-Friendly Cheesy Chicken Cutlet Fingers

During Ramadan, it's almost unavoidable to have fried snacks. The smell of fried snacks always hits different when you are fasting. I plan to share iftar recipes, where there is a moderation between fried and non-fried snacks. These Freezer friendly cheesy chicken Cutlet Fingers are super easy to make, and that you don't waste time shaping the cutlets is such a time saver hack!

I had some leftover basic chicken filling, that's when I tried out this hack, that dawned on me and oh boy, I so love this hack! I love cutlets but shaping them takes up so much time. I will share the chicken filling recipe below. Also Cheesey snacks tend to break and ooze out when made immediately, the zip lock-freezing hack comes so handy as, the cheese will not burst out that easily. You may use a baking paper to make a block of the chicken potato mix that are sandwiched between Mozzarella cheese. And they kept in the freezer to become a solid square for 3-4 hours or overnight. Then thaw for half an hour and cut into equal strips and cut into halves. And coat them in egg mixture and coat them in bread crumbs.

Do definitely give the recipe a try, in Sha Allah!
